Bounty hunter Jack Keller faces his most dangerous and sadistic enemy yet in this explosive Southern thriller
Jack Keller works in fugitive apprehension, and never feels more alive than when he's hunting down a skip. But when a young girl goes missing, and Keller finds out that the father is an AWOL member of the army's elite Delta Force, he knows immediately that this case will be anything but fun and games.
Keller is a Gulf War vet who knows his way around the Army's red tape, but the psychological scars from his experiences in the gulf have only just started to recede enough for him to live and love again. No one is sure how taking on the kidnapping case will affect him, least of all his girlfriend Marie, who's counting on Jack's recovery if they are going to have any future together. But a young girl's life hangs in the balance, and a shadowy group of missing Delta commandos seems to be the key to finding her. For Jack Keller, it's not an easy decision, but it's the only one he can make: consequences be damned, he's going after the girl.

Praise For Safe and Sound

"JD Rhoades kicks ass. Jack Keller kicks ass. You'll read it in one sitting, and be breathless by the finish. Rhoades writes with wit, style, and adrenalin. I can't wait for the next Keller adventure."--J.A. Konrath, author of RUSTY NAIL 
"Rhoades seems to have observed and remembered all the seedy details of life outside the centers of urban and suburban life as we know it. Nobody could totally invent this stuff."--Chicago Tribune
"Rhoades portrays unrepentant, psychotic killers but manages to make us feel, almost against our will, the human hearts that beat within their violent souls." --Booklist
